We were planning to have lunch at Topshelve but finally we ended up eating here since it was closed for Deepavali.
I first went into Mukha to survey it and fell in love with the fittings and interior. I returned to the place and ordered the Aussie Lamb (RM30) which I initially intented to cancel due to worry of the large portion since the greedy part of me wanted to try the cakes there.
Thank god I did not cancel the lamb because it is the best I have ever tried in my entire life. The meat was so tender and for the first time in life, I sacrificed my diet and ate all the fats as it was so fragrant as it was infused with honey so much that the whole thing tasted of honey. Normally when people marinate with honey, one can hardly taste the honey. I praised the chef personally. The grilled potato cubes and carrots and sweet pumpkins were the most amazing I have ever tried.
The Kofta Meatball (RM 16) was the best I have tried. Seriously, I never really liked meatballs but these were amazing. The meatballs were soft and small compared to the normal ones. It costs just RM 1 extra to add in spaghetti. It was served with tomato and basil sauce. Totally meatball heaven like one cartoon, called "Meatball."
Now it comes to the coffee review. The Gahwa (RM 9) is Mukha's very own blend of coffee, or would I say, very unique experience of drinking coffee. When it arrived, the chinese-styled teapot and teacups made me think they got my order wrongly and I even questioned the waiter twice. The strangest thing is that the coffee is blended with ginger!
Shahi (RM 10) is Arabian tea boiled with mint leaves. The good thing is that bitterness of the tea is retained.
The Hazelnut Torie (RM 10) is fantastic. The chocolate cake is so soft. The best part is the chocolate on top with a big hazelnut inside. It was also the last piece in the fridge! I was too late for the peanut butter pie as I was undecided on what to order. The cakes were freshly made there compared to those commercial franchises out there. I so wanted to taste Pavlova but the cream and sugar deterred me.
The prices of food here is very reasonable as most items cost less than RM 20 except for the Aussie Lamb.
The ambience is incredible, very quiet and suitable for hangouts, gatherings, reunions and family outings. Halal is also in the shots.
